Start of your saga.
On a track.
Your family have been kidnapped.
On a river bank.
The game begins at the end of a path, with you, Eric the Viking, sitting on a hill.
You head for home.
Nobody's home...and your longhouse smells like wolves.
The game starts with the publishers logo
There then follows a copyright notice
The game controls are explained
The game screen. Text is shown at the bottom and pictures are drawn in the central window. The drawing process is quite slow. First the black outlines are added bit by bit
The colour is added later
The game starts out with a puzzle as paths to the North, South, East & West are all blocked.
Even with all paths blocked it is possible to progress in the game
The game really begins here. Erik's family have been kidnapped
